LIGHT August 12th:
Lets start with
the full disk, I can get this with the SV80 which has a much
larger field than the six inch. This is with the Baader Herschel
wedge and Contiuum filters with IR/UV blockers.
Two close ups
here, with the 5x Televue powermate. Nice granulation is shown
and a remarkable set of small groups.
with the 5x:
Now here is
a full disk shot with the SV80 again, but with the Lunt Calcium
K filter. Not as contrasty as when using a barlow but shows the
major disk details in UV light at 395nm.
Some close ups
with the Cak. I can only use the 3x barlow on calcium shots,
since the seeing in near UV is always very bad!
region on the limb.
A valiant attempt
to get a prom with the Cak filter. They are very faint at this
wavelength, but usually shaped very differently in UV than they
are with the Halpha filters.
